Two technical issues - CV Joint and Seized Tracking Rods
I thought it better to start a new thread to ask some advice from those technically inclined.
As mentioned, my 166 3.0 Auto o/s front CV boot has disintegrated, causing a leak of the fluid too.
My question, will obtaining a new boot be sufficient or is it advisable to get a new CV joint too? Clearly these CV issues are what are causing the vibration to occur that I mentioned in my other thread. I would appreciate any advice on this.
Secondly, I wanted to have four wheel alignment carried out as my tyre wear was uneven on the front but they were unable to do it as the track rods are seized. Is this a common issue and are there easy (and cheap) solutions?
Thanks for any advice.
